Toshiba, HP, or Asus Netbook??? Suggestions appreciated!
I am a Tech at two elementary schools and have been put in charge of ordering replacements laptops for our Mobile carts (Carts filled with about 20 iBooks hooked to power and printer, etc.). We have decided to purchase Netbooks to replace the iBooks and I have narrowed it down to three that would work for us and have done so much research on them that it would be nice to have the opinion of others working in the field.
HP Mini 110
Asus Eee PC 1001Pxd
I have about 100 I need to order between the two schools. I think I am leaning toward the Toshiba or HP, as I have read reviews about netbooting being kind of a big pain on the Asus. Not too fond of all the bad customer service reviews with Toshiba and HP either.
All we need them for is basic computing, Internet, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and maybe 1 or 2 small educational apps.
Does anyone have an advice, suggestions, etc. to help me decide?
Also, all come with only 1GB memory, do I upgrade right off the bat, or do I wait a year or two??
Thanks for any help, I am a Tech, new to working in a school district....Corporate work experience....Totally different!
